Nothing fazes good-natured George, and he views every day at Hike Maui as a new adventure. “Different guests, weather conditions, and critters make every hike unique,” he says.
On his days off, George and his wife Alisha spend time four-wheel driving off the beaten path. “We never get tired of exploring. Even if we’ve been someplace before, it looks different the next time around.”
Born the middle child of seven in Saratoga Springs, New York, George first came to Maui on vacation in 2009 to visit a friend, and liked it here so much he skipped his flight home. Before joining Hike Maui, George spent several years working as a purser on snorkel boats. But even though he’s now on terra firma, don’t be surprised if he greets you the morning of your hike with a cheery “Ahoy!”
Guest quote: George was very knowledgeable, kept us engaged and informed throughout the drive and the hike, and was funny and pleasant to chat with. It was a very enjoyable experience.
